Oct. 16, 2013 — Two Carter County residents were arrested last week on trafficking charges.
Kylie Mulkey, 24, of Hitchins, and Jayson Burton, 25, of Grayson, were arrested early Friday morning and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance.
The arrests came as the result of an investigation that started a few days before.
Over the course of the investigation, Grayson police seized 122 oxycodone and methadone pills.
“We are very happy to have been able to take nearly $4,000 in illegal narcotics off the street,” Chief Kevin McDavid told the Journal-Times.
Burton is lodged in the Carter County Detention Center. Mulkey was released on bond Monday.
The case remains under investigation by GPD officer Jon McCormick.
